the lesson here is, it is impossible to choose to walk both, she named them "The way of the world and The way of the Lord". As we learn from 3 Nephi 13:24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.
One more lesson - - - Elder Allred said for sure he knew this one, well he did and he actually showed Sister Mecham a new way to do it.
We are grateful for the inspiration and loving guidance that Sister Mecham taught. It is our prayer that we will be able to apply these teachings to our own lives also and share and teach to others.
